Sucks, doesn't it?

So, Lone Star, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.

Nope, but then again, my house is surrounded by the North Korean Army so it's not even possible. Although, yesterday, i kept thinking about other ways of getting my bike stolen, such as someone hitting me over the head while stopped at a light. Anyone have any stories as such?

It was College and the bike was a POS and on it's last leg - It was semister end as well so I was kinda happy in a way

That is f'n scary! When i'm going home i circle around the area (alleys) to check if there are any fuckers waiting. I live in a dead end with an alley at the end, which is super dark, so i always double check before i approach my house.

Yeah.

In 1990, while taking a night school class at College of Lake County, my pearl white EX500 (todays Ninja 500) with a rockin' gold stripe was stolen from the parking lot.



I loved it (my very first new bike) but c'mon. . . this thing was not a great looking bike and the performance was lacking at best! Who steals a white EX500?!

How you found us: CLSB DECAL
           
Yes, I still miss her...

1990 Honda CBR 1000F

Had this beauty during the Gulf War and rode it in many parades and tribute functions....Lived in an apartment in Florida and rented a covered garage 75 feet away from my first floor apartment... Came out one Monday morning only to find her gone.. She was locked down with 2 rotor locks & a chain to a steel pole that help up structure. They cut it all, left rotors on the ground, right next to her was my girlfriends YSR 50 pit bike, with just a little BS chain, they didnt even touch it......

My heart dropped when I walked out to see her gone....

Excuse me!!!!!!

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

I've stolen hundreds of bikes...

usually I run up to them with my Chain saw, and do an elbow move and knock them off while jumping on and taking off. of course then I ride around doing wheelies and stoppies crashing numerous times till the bike finally blows up and then I steal another one. Ahhh the good old days in Liberty City but then my friend tubs double crossed me and I had to kill him.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Last year, my 03 600RR was stolen. Sucks big donkey balls! But I'm all healed up now with my 06 1000RR. Its the worst feeling in the world to see the spot where your baby used to be parked. And you know it was stolen, your heart just breaks. I still think about it when I walk my the spot it used to be parked in, just hoping...

no, but I have left it out on the driveway overnight by mistake, walked out to the garage in the morning and THOUGHT it was stolen.

Yup...it's one of those things that happens and you say to yourself "Ahhh, now all that shit my dad's done that seemed strange at the time makes sense"

Lesson learned...i get odd responses for some of the precautions i now take from people that haven't experienced a bike theft...it'll all make sense someday

I block mine in the garage with my car. Unless they can figure out how to lift a 530lb bike over a car, I should be okay.

If it did get stolen, I don't think I would even care that much as long as I didn't see it again.

That's exactly how i felt after my F4 got ripped...once it was gone, that was it...never wanted to see the thing again. Damaged goods at that point.
